You might not have the fondest childhood memories of meatloaf, but winter is the perfect time to revisit the loaf. It’s a perfect vehicle for packing in tons of protein, iron and other nutrients into a handy, sliceable main dish. The recipes are often pretty forgiving, they’re easily made vegan or gluten-free, and they freeze well, meaning you have hearty re-heatable leftovers for days. So pull up a plate of mashed potatoes, settle in and enjoy these savory, comforting meatless veggie loaves.
